We had Sergio take us around Palermo. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, entertaining and accommodating. We ended our tour with a lovely lunch with him at a great local trattoria. Would recommend him to anyone.

It's a private guide. He is not affiliated with a company, that's why he is very flexible about hours, times and locations. You won't be disappointed: it's a great experience.
